Documentary Wedding Photographer

Welcome! I am Pamela, a documentary wedding photographer in Pittsburgh, PA and have been photographing weddings since 2004. I believe beautiful moments live in photographs forever, and it is a PRIVILEGE to be chosen to document yours!


The truth is that I don’t want to get in the way or tell you how to experience your own wedding day. I want to connect with you and your people, to photograph all the joy, and ultimately deliver natural, raw, candid moments that tell your story. The way a photojournalist would!

There is more to your story than just the obvious...

Welcome! Pamela Anticole is a documentary wedding photographer in Pittsburgh, PA.


Documentary wedding photography is a unique approach to photographing weddings, that focuses on capturing CANDID moments in a really artistic way. All wedding photographers are trained to capture beautiful, classic portraits of couples on their wedding day, but documentary wedding photographers ALSO take it a step further… filling in all the gaps with emotive, creative pictures that together tell a full, emotional story of your wedding day. Like a photojournalist would!


This means your wedding photos won’t bring back memories of your wedding photographer telling you where to stand, how to tilt your head, or when your bridesmaids should get dressed. All you’ll remember is all the joy and wonder and love that surrounded you on the first day of your new marriage!

What do you want to remember about your wedding day?

Would you rather spend your wedding day with your family and friends, than taking hours and hours of portraits all around Pittsburgh's greatest venues?

Are you more interested in pictures of grandma having the time of her life on the dance floor, than you are of your dress on the wall?

Do you want wedding photographs that make you emotional- or just BUST A GUT from laughing?

I offer wedding photography in Pittsburgh that is DIFFERENT.

Client Love

"Where to begin ♥️ I fell in love with Pamela’s work about 12yrs ago. Her style is easy, timeless and authentic. She has an incredible eye and her ability to capture emotion in a snapshot is unmatched. I was sold! We hired her to be our wedding photographer, had an amazing engagement session (...or 2) and were blown away by our wedding photos and stunning album... Pamela is calm, easy to work with, creative, respectful and dedicated to her clients and her work. I am forever grateful our paths crossed and that we have entrusted her with our most precious memories"
